I was sadden by the news of her passing. I have known Tonya for close to 30 years. When I think back on those years I have a richer understanding of how lucky I was to have known her. I will miss her. My thoughts and prayers will be with her family.
John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” I pray that you found peace in the Lord. Love your little brother.
May God accept you in his arms and hold you close.
